The newly minted Duke and Duchess of Sussex have officially made their second debut as a married couple and the world just can’t get enough! On June 9th, 2018, the lovely newlyweds appeared on the coveted Buckingham balcony for the famous Royal Family appearance to honor the Queen’s birthday event, Trooping the Color!
The couple- who just returned from their private honeymoon less than 48 hours before the monumental event- made Trooping the Color their second appearance since their wedding on May 19th. Their first debut was in honor of Prince Charles’ 70th birthday garden party. The couple looked radiant and in love- something that has managed to capture the hearts of the world. Their appearance at the Trooping the Color was no different; again, they captivated the world.
The crowd cheered as they were the first to see the Duke and Duchess for the first time since their honeymoon. As they rejoiced in their favorite royal newlyweds, they realized something that they had never expected. As they peered closely at the couple, they were shocked to realize what they had only assumed to be a figment of their imagination…
As Prince Harry stood proudly next to his wife, he was wearing something that no other married royal in his family has chosen to wear… he was wearing his wedding ring!
The prince gained his newest piece of jewelry during his May 19th nuptials, but many had figured that the ring exchange was simply for show, however, it appears that he’s planning on keeping the ring on his finger!
Most royal married men go without a wedding ring! To see Harry in a wedding ring was quite literally shocking! Prince Philip, Prince Charles, and Prince William all have chosen to go without a wedding ring- but not Prince Harry!
His choice to wear a wedding ring is just another statement made by the Duke and Duchess confirming that they don’t follow traditions, so much as they follow their hearts. Similar to Princess Diana who was famously recorded confessing that she leads from the heart, Prince Harry has demonstrated his own choice rather than his family’s choices.
The ring looked lovely on his hand and we’re sure Meghan is proud to see her new husband sport the small band on his ring finger. We love the refreshing love of the Harry and Meghan and we look forward to seeing what other statements they’ll choose to make as a couple!
